A Blank Check


Master list of angst
bullet points ricochet in French
more common than stars in the sea

Sheer height cranes a neck
wears down the shoulders for the burden
victory useless in the dark
and to the deaf

Love may turn around twice before it sees you
till then spend it freely – collect the interest
that will pay bills
slink off with your heart full
deposit signs that it will arrive

Nonetheless look, spend – save when the cataclysm
ends, grants you reprieve – not a moment before

Lord Bison

Jazz-soaked spirit running circles around despair...or something like that. Really. Lover of words, lover of being in worlds free...just...free. New Yorker, artist, Virgo besieged by airhead tendencies akin to Libra moves. Bronx is home base. Began an obsession with writing at seven and twenty-odd years hence, still at it. Enjoy/love/hate/be bored/appreciate to your heart's content. Or something like that. http://www.lbisonartist.com
